Considering Naraku was born from the murderous bandit Onigumo, it makes sense that Naraku would be just as much of a monster. He’s the greatest threat to humans in Inuyasha, which is mainly due to the fact that Naraku has hundreds of yokai on his side.
If Naraku’s massive strength didn’t make him scary enough, Naraku has an obsession with Kikyo that is downright creepy. While most yokai enjoy causing mischief for people, Naraku enjoys creating chaos and misery. He even laughs at the fact that he’s responsible for the death of Sango’s entire family, which is pretty heartless.
The yokai, which are called Mushi in the anime Mushishi, have a bad habit of attaching themselves to people. This is especially true for the Mushi known as Darkness of Minato, which burrow themselves into a person’s eyes and make it painful for them to look directly at sunlight.
They may not be the scariest-looking yokai, but the thought of them living in a person’s eyes is downright terrifying. Sui even states that she can feel them moving inside her eyes. Luckily, Ginko is able to get them out of her eyes, and she’s able to go outside again.
